Precinct 14, Rocks the 2011 Vote

Once again, and perhaps more strikingly than ever, Precinct 14 outdid itself. While citywide, the turnout of voters was in the low 20% range, we had about a 30% turnout (counting the early votes, which are not represented in the official turnout #). We had 968 votes on election day and over 100 from our precinct did early voting, so we topped 1,000 and were probably closer to 1,100.

Here is a breakdown from the Wake Board of Elections website:

Precinct 01-14

School Board: Jim Martin 787 = Cynthia Matson 117
Mayor: Nancy McFarlane 792 = Billie Redmond 126
City Council: Eugene Weeks 584 (total votes cast for this office were 876)
City Council At-Large: Russ Stephenson 723 = Fitts 119 = Mary-Ann Baldwin 755

Transportation Bond: 814 Yes, 136 No
Housing Bond: 763 Yes, 190 No
